Why Rye?

Once distilled once a year, rye’s rising up the ranks in the hearts of American whiskey drinkers. Is it replacing bourbon? Does it complement bourbon? And why is rye finally taking off?

Moderated by Carla Carlton, Bourbon Women

Featuring: Harlen Wheatley, master distiller for Buffalo Trace; Kyle Henderson, distiller for Angel’s Envy, Caleb Kilburn, head distiller of Peerless; and Denny Potter, master distiller of Heaven Hill

Your moderator, renowned author and Bourbon+ managing editor Carla Carlton, will lead a lively discussion about the place and growth of Rye whiskey. You’ll notice you’re all from Kentucky. That’s by design. So, let’s talk up Kentucky rye as much as possible and where it sits in the pantheon of American right now.

Enjoy our staff playlists to prepare for the festivities. We’ll see you at the Big Bourbon Bar!
